Refinancing a Home with a Hawaii or California Reverse Mortgage

The federally-insured Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) is the most popular type of reverse mortgage on the market today and was created to make it easier for people over 62 years of age to access the equity in their home.

Reverse Mortgage (HECM) Overview:

The Hawaii  or California Reverse Mortgage allows homeowners to stay in their homes as long as they wish without making a monthly mortgage payment—provided homeowner’s insurance and taxes are kept current, and the home is kept in good repair.

Not only does the HECM eliminate monthly mortgage payments, but it can also be used to receive additional funds. How these additional funds are dispersed can be customized in order to suit each individual homeowner’s needs.

The amount of money that an eligible homeowner can receive depends on their age and the amount of equity they have in their home. There are absolutely no restrictions on what can be done with the funds disbursed from a reverse mortgage! The HECM becomes due when none of the original borrowers live in the home, if taxes or insurance become delinquent, or it the property falls into disrepair.

This general information is NOT a substitution for the advice of an attorney, accountant, and/or financial planner. Before you decide to pursue a reverse mortgage, you should carefully consider your individual circumstances so you can make a wise decision about the most valuable asset you may own—your home. Factors to consider include whether the proposed reverse mortgage is a recourse or nonrecourse loan, whether the loan would have a fixed or adjustable interest rate, and/or the current and projected market value of your home.

The lender will charge an origination fee, a mortgage insurance premium, closing costs or servicing fees for the reverse mortgage, all or any of which the lender will add to the balance of the reverse mortgage loan.
The balance of the reverse mortgage loan grows over time and the lender charges interest on the outstanding loan balance.

At the conclusion of the term of the reverse mortgage loan contract, some or all of the equity in the property that is the subject of the reverse mortgage no longer belongs to the person and the borrower may need to sell or transfer the property to repay the proceeds of the reverse mortgage from the proceeds of the sale or transfer or you must otherwise repay the reverse mortgage with interest from other personal assets. In order to retain the home when the reverse mortgage becomes due that (1) the consumer or the consumer’s heirs or estate must pay the entire loan balance and (2) the balance may be greater than the value of the consumer’s home.

The consumer retains title to the property that is the subject of the reverse mortgage until the person sells or transfers the property and is therefore responsible for paying property taxes, insurance, maintenance and related taxes. Failing to pay these amounts may cause the reverse mortgage loan to become due immediately and may subject the property to a tax lien or other encumbrance or to possible foreclosure.
Interest on a reverse mortgage is not deductible from the consumer’s income tax return until the consumer repays all or part of the reverse mortgage loan.
